GEOP2030 is available in day and online study modes. For day students, learning and teaching will be via a mix of face-to-face lectures, pre-recorded lectures, online workshops and pre-class activities. Day students will come to a seminar class that will be a mix of lecture and tutorial-based activities throughout the semester. Your timetable includes a lecture and tutorial allocation but we are going to conduct the class as a seminar, allocating some time to lecture-style instruction and other to discussion-based activities.
Online students: a portion of each week’s face-to-face lecture will be recorded for you to listen to and then a series of activities will be set for this study mode.
Please see the unit schedule on iLearn for details of these compulsory activities.
Seminar time: 11-2pm Mondays, 6 Eastern Rd - 314 Tutorial Rm
Teaching and Learning Strategies and Workload Expectations
Non-attendance at these sessions or non-completion of online activities, poor preparation and participation will affect your overall engagement with the unit and also your grade for GEOP2030. You must contact Jess (email@example.com) if you are unable to attend a session due to unavoidable circumstances, otherwise your grade will be affected. Day students attend all lectures and workshops as scheduled, as per your student registration.
GEOP2030 aims to be a challenging and stimulating unit that not only engages with and critiques the 'Colonial Present’ but also reflects on our role as individuals within that system.
GEOP2030 aims to offer you as many opportunities as possible to engage with your role as a student through up-to-date material, case studies, and reflective exercises.
